Tim Penny Architecture + Interiors

Bay of Fires House

About the Project:

This is shack is set in North East Tasmania’s Bay of Fires, north of Binalong Bay. It was an experiment in maximizing architecture with very limited means.
The design approach was to use locally available materials, designed to be constructed by a carpenter with no finishing trades. It incorporates best practice sustainable design as an off grid home including solar panels, gas hot water, composting toilet, recycled fittings together with landscape and local ecology regeneration.
Over time it has settled into the landscape and is a peaceful retreat.
